Royal Canin knows that what makes your American Shorthair cat magnificent is in the details. These affectionate, easygoing cats come in an array of gorgeous colors and love a good play session as much as they love a good nap. It takes the right diet to support digestive issues, keep them at a healthy weight, and maintain their signature coat’s luster and shine.

That’s why Royal Canin created American Shorthair dry cat food. This tailor-made and exclusive breed-specific diet helps ensure your American Shorthair cat stays their most magnificent self. The right balance of fiber, fats, and proteins helps control weight gain. Highly digestible proteins and prebiotics promote healthy digestion. Essential nutrients like amino acids, vitamins, and omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids give their coat a luxurious shine. And the crescent-shaped cat kibble is specially designed for your American Shorthair’s shortened muzzle to encourage chewing and help support good oral health.

Great health

I have had my cat, with mega-colon, on this food from the beginning of production. It has kept him going for 6 years. It is so great with their digestion I have put all 13 cats on it. It really helps with my older cats that were having problems pooping. All of my cats like the taste of it.

the Cat likes it!

my Cat is fairly picky when it comes to dry cat food, so I'm pleased that she will eat the R.C. American Shorthair Adult Dry Cat Food.

Cats love it

I have 3 cats and they love their dry food. As soon as they hear it put in the bowl they all come running.

Best Food

I absolutely love Royal Canin cat food. My cat's coat is much silkier and smoother than it ever has been. I never thought that their food would make that much of a difference. I've tried other higher priced foods and they did not work as well, some of which my cats wouldn't even eat. When I have had kittens in the house, I always feed them the Baby Cat formula and just keep changing to the appropriate type of Royal Canin for their age.

My Cats Love It!

After seeing how great my daughter's cats look, I took her recommendation and started feeding my cats Royal Canin. They look great and are healthy. I dont worry about the quality of what I feed them.

Eats It Up

I wanted to try some new food for my Boston Terrier. Not that she was unhappy with her food I just wanted to change things up. Well to my surprise she totally loved Royal Canin. I love that they have a food designed just for her for short hair dogs. I love all the natural ingredients in it so I know she is eating good things and not junk. I love that she now has a few brands of food she loves so that I can switch it up and be so happy with both choices. I am so thankful for your brand and I hope you continue to develop products and flavors that my little girl will just love; and where I will rest easy knowing she is eating something that is good for her and its reasonably priced.
